Lavender Bath Bombs

I shared these Lavender Bath Bombs on my Facebook profile recently and had a great response. I even had someone ask if I took custom orders because they wanted to buy some bath bombs from me. I don’t sell them and explained that I make them for my blog. My goal here is to teach you how to make them yourself. Sell them, keep them, give them away as a gift – they are yours to do whatever you like with!

Typically, bath bombs are circles, but I hadn’t received my bath bomb molds yet from Amazon so I used a silicone mold instead. I used a heart shaped silicone mold and think they turned out better than expected.

Bath bombs are so easy to make. You need baking soda, cornstarch and citric acid for your base. Then add in your favourite essential oil and soap colorant to make them pretty and smell nice. I used purple soap colorant and lavender essential oil here.

To use, add them into your bath water and enjoy the fizz. I find them so relaxing to use!
